Autumn Leaves

Hello crafters. I have an autumnal card to share today that I made for an October Birthday. The leaves aren't quite this colour in Dorset, but they are getting there for sure. I love walking or riding and hearing the crunch of leaves under foot. Autumn is always special to me as we married in November to fit around the farming calendar. It was after maize harvesting!!


Anyway, I used some of the items that came with the Crafter's Companion Autumn Inspiration Pack and was really delighted with the result.

Back to the theme of walking, I had better take Bowie and Bumble for their morning ramble before I go to work!! Have a good day whatever you are up to xx

The change in colours is slow here as well Sarah, probably the late summer rains helped the leaves hang in there a bit longer. I always love crafty wreaths and your Autumnal ones with the lovely hues is a beauty.

A gorgeous Autumnal wreath card Sarah. The leaves are still green here for the most part but they won't be long before they are clogging up the gutters and covering the lawn but I do love the pretty warm colours they produce.

Gosh Sarah, that is gorgeous hunny! I haven't been able to pop in much lately. I've been looking after a friend's bub, so taking a wee break from creating. But I'm missing it so much! So I thought I'd pop in today for a quick catch up. Love this beautiful creation hun, those Autumnal hues are delish!! Stunning work. Hugs, Wends xoxo

Beautiful and elegant Fall card, Sarah. It's so hard for me to think about Fall when we are still having temperatures of =/- 30 degrees C :-) Not that I'm complaining - I love warm weather and I'm not looking to the winter at all. Having been raised in South Africa, it feels very natural to me to have a nice warm Christmas :-)
Enjoy your day.
